Neighborhood and Market Area
Comparable selection is based first on subject's neighborhood boundaries, which are rarely exact. A market area is broader in scope but is an area that buyers and sellers would consider including in their search for comparable properties. Attention is given a property’s proximity to employment, services, linkages, and amenities.
The lot or acreage - land ready for improvements. The location always has both benefits and detriments. Within the neighborhood it may be neutral or average, or it may have e.g., some detriment due to traffic or a commercial use nearby. The zoning, general plan and environmental risk all play a part in land value.
Public records are analyzed to confirm sales and make comparisons in the particular West Sacramento region. A range of public records and sources are used including zoning records, tax data, professional associations, and other applicable publications.
Estimating the Market Value
- Sales Comparison
In its most basic form, this approach is built on the premise that the market value of a property can be derived from comparable properties in the neighborhood and market area.
- Cost Approach
Since the market obviously relates to cost, this approach takes into account and analyzes market trends as defined by two specific elements: Land value plus improvements, minus depreciation.
- Income Approach
Generally reserved for valuations of multi unit and commercial investment properties. An estimate of market value using the income capitalization approach relies on the perspective that the current and continued income of real estate is a measure of its value. Current or projected income of the subject is compared to similar properties using a gross rent multiplier - this is the common method for 2-4 unit investments. Projected income must be supported by market data.
